Righteousness goes before him, And prepares the way for his steps. A Prayer by David.
Are your wonders made known in the dark? Or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Loving kindness and truth go before your face.
In your name they rejoice all day. In your righteousness, they are exalted.
to show that the LORD is upright. He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
For judgment will return to righteousness. All the upright in heart shall follow it.
before the LORD; for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, the peoples with his truth.
Clouds and darkness are around him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
The heavens declare his righteousness. All the peoples have seen his glory.
the LORD has made known his salvation. He has openly shown his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
Let them sing before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.
The King's strength also loves justice. You do establish equity. You execute justice and righteousness in Jacob.
But the LORD's loving kindness is from everlasting to everlasting with those who fear him, his righteousness to children's children;
That was credited to him for righteousness, for all generations to come.
His work is honor and majesty. His righteousness endures forever.
Wealth and riches are in his house. His righteousness endures forever.
He has dispersed, he has given to the poor. His righteousness endures forever. His horn will be exalted with honor.
Open to me the gates of righteousness. I will enter into them. I will give thanks to Yah.
Behold, I long for your precepts! Revive me in your righteousness. WAW
You have commanded your statutes in righteousness. They are fully trustworthy.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness. Your law is truth.
Let my tongue sing of your word, for all your commandments are righteousness.
Let your priest be clothed with righteousness. Let your saints shout for joy!"
Hear my prayer, the LORD. Listen to my petitions. In your faithfulness and righteousness, relieve me.
Revive me, the LORD, for your name's sake. In your righteousness, bring my soul out of trouble.
They will utter the memory of your great goodness, and will sing of your righteousness.
I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war.
He who acts unjustly, let him act unjustly still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him do righteousness still. He who is holy, let him be holy still."
For in it is revealed God's righteousness from faith to faith. As it is written, "But the righteous shall live by faith."
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, malice; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil habits, secret slanderers,
but to those who are self-seeking, and don't obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, will be wrath and indignation,
But if our unrighteousness commends the righteousness of God, what will we say? Is God unrighteous who inflicts wrath? I speak like men do.
But now apart from the law, a righteousness of God has been revealed, being testified by the law and the prophets;
even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ to all and on all those who believe. For there is no distinction,
whom God set forth to be an atoning sacrifice, through faith in his blood, for a demonstration of his righteousness through the passing over of prior sins, in God's forbearance;
to demonstrate his righteousness at this present time; that he might himself be just, and the justifier of him who has faith in Jesus.
For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness."
But to him who doesn't work, but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness.
Even as David also pronounces blessing on the man to whom God counts righteousness apart from works,
Is this blessing then pronounced on the circumcised, or on the uncircumcised also? For we say that faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness.
He received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while he was in uncircumcision, that he might be the father of all those who believe, though they might be in uncircumcision, that righteousness might also be accounted to them.
For the promise to Abraham and to his seed that he should be heir of the world wasn't through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
Therefore it also was "reckoned to him for righteousness."
For if by the trespass of the one, death reigned through the one; so much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ.
So then as through one trespass, all men were condemned; even so through one act of righteousness, all men were justified to life.
that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Neither present your members to sin as instruments of unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God, as alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.
Don't you know that to whom you present yourselves as servants to obedience, his servants you are whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?
Being made free from sin, you became bondservants of righteousness.
I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh, for as you presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to wickedness upon wickedness, even so now present your members as servants to righteousness for sanctification.
For when you were servants of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
If Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? May it never be!
for He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, because the LORD will make a short work upon the earth."
What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, who didn't follow after righteousness, attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith;
but Israel, following after a law of righteousness, didn't arrive at the law of righteousness.
For being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they didn't subject themselves to the righteousness of God.
For Christ is the fulfillment of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
For Moses writes about the righteousness of the law, "The one who does them will live by them."
But the righteousness which is of faith says this, "Don't say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven?' (that is, to bring Christ down);
For with the heart, one believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
for the Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
not by works of righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy, he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
and I will bring them, and they will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem; and they will be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness."
Seek the LORD, all you humble of the land, who have kept his ordinances. Seek righteousness. Seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the LORD's anger.
